  • Northern Indiana clerks reporting absentee ballot glitches with state
    “Anytime anything goes wrong with absentee voting, because the window is so small, I get concerned.” - St. Joseph County Clerk Terri Rethlake, who is reporting problems with Indiana state computer server glitches preventing the processing of mail-in absentee ballots. Elkhart County Clerk Chris Anderson told the South Bend Tribune the same problems are occurring there. “I had to deal with more than 40 errors in about two hours, and each time I put in something and sent it off for them to investigate,” Anderson said. “We’re getting into our silly season and running on not enough sleep and too many things to do. This has been an ongoing issue.”

  • The Kavanaugh effect on the INSen race
    Around 5 p.m. Saturday, the U.S. Senate is expected to confirm Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh. Vice President Mike Pence may cast the deciding vote (one Republican senator will be at his daughter’s wedding). Most believe this will bring a distinct rightward shift to the high court.

    It could also signal a similar shift in the showdown between U.S. Sen. Joe Donnelly and Republican nominee Mike Braun. They are locked in a tight race, with the latest Fox News poll giving Donnelly a 43-41% lead with Libertarian Lucy Brenton at 6% (Donnelly is well below that 50% that makes an incumbent comfortable and Brenton seems to be siphoning off some of his support). Donnelly’s likely voters extremely or very interested in voting for him stood at 71%; Braun at 72% with his voters. In September poll, Donnelly was at 76% and Braun at 66%. So Republican intensity is up. That's the Kavanaugh impact. 

    The two square for their first statewide televised debate at 7 p.m. Monday (6 p.m. CT) at Purdue North Central in Westville. We’ll be covering that, and keeping a keen eye on post-Kavanaugh confirmation polls in the coming week. This U.S. Senate race is a tossup and volatile.
